Abstract


Image processing algorithms applied on programmable embedded systems very often do not meet the given constraints in terms of real time capability. Mapping these algorithms to reconfigurable hardware solves this issue, but demands further specific knowledge in hardware development. The design process can be accelerated by code generation through high-level synthesis, which is very flexible. However, the quality of synthesis depends on many factors like the provided constraints, code description, and algorithmic complexity. Hence, optimizing these parameters may improve the generated results in terms of logic and memory utilization, as well as data throughput and synthesis duration. In this work, we aim to exploit domain-specific knowledge for a hybrid code description in order to benefit from rapid development through high-level synthesis in combination with throughput optimized generic hardware descriptions. By utilizing code generation techniques, the entire design flow gets accelerated. Our synthesis results show a similar resource utilization and achievable throughput to a pure HDL described hardware.
